Abstract

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is the most dramatic and catastrophic complication of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM),1 with an annual rate of >1%.1 The identification of those patients most likely to benefit from prophylacticimplantable cardioverter defibrillators remains challenging in children and adults. The positive predictive value for appropriate discharges is low (≈20%), and the complication rates in this younger, active population is substantial, including lead problems, infections, inappropriate discharges, and psychological issues
